A slipped disc can occur anywhere along the spine, but it is often problematic when it occurs in the neck. The neck contains a significant portion of the spinal cord, and a protruding disc can cause symptoms in the neck, arms, and shoulders because of nerve irritation.
This video discusses some of the treatment options for a slipped disc in the neck. You may feel relief by simply resting the neck and using a cervical collar. However, if the problem is severe, you could need surgery for the condition.
If you are experiencing neck pain, seek treatment with the specialists at SpineOne. Contact us on our website or call (303) 367-2225 to learn about all our treatment options.
